D-Mart follows Everyday low cost – Everyday low price (EDLC-EDLP) strategy which aims at procuring goods at a competitive price, using operational and distribution efficiency, and thereby delivering value for money to customers by selling at competitive prices. 

Commenting on the performance of the company Mr. Neville Noronha, CEO & Managing Director, Avenue Supermarts Limited, said: “Q1 FY 2021-22 saw a much stronger second wave of Covid-19 restrictions. We lost significantly  more days or had a higher restriction on the number of hours of store operations compared to the
same period last year.

DMart (Brick and Mortar) Business Overview
Revenues have grown by 31% over the corresponding quarter of last year. This is because the lockdown periods were at different times in different regions during the quarter. Some cities announced early lockdowns and continue to have stringent measures in place even now while some cities eased the restrictions within 3-4 weeks after their early lockdown. There were also cities that announced lockdowns much later and are now in the process of relaxing them. Despite lesser hours of operations this time, we had more customer footfalls than in the same period last year and this has translated into higher sales. One of the key reasons for this is that even though restrictions on operations were more severe, personal mobility was relatively less stringent than last time. Additionally, we also had 22 new stores that were opened post-Q1 FY 2020-21.

Lockdown measures are now gradually reducing across multiple cities. Across these multiple periods of lockdowns, we have come to realize that a store needs at least 45 days of unhindered operational time to get back to pre-Covid sales momentum.

We have not seen any significant impact on our supply chain during the quarter. Our inventory is also gradually moving towards normal levels. Construction activity has also commenced at all our sites.
